BeeWalk – the national bumblebee monitoring scheme

Buff-tailed Bumblebee, Bombus terrestris: showing a decrease (Les Moore)
BeeWalk from Bumblebee Conservation Trust is a standardised bumblebee-monitoring scheme active across Great Britain. The scheme protocol involves volunteer BeeWalkers walking the same fixed route (a transect of around 1-2 kilometres) at least once a month between March and October (inclusive).  This covers the full flight period of the bumblebees, including emergence from overwintering and workers tailing off. 
If you could set up and walk a transect in your area, you would be part of improving our understanding of bumblebee populations, and contributing to how we best protect all our species into the future.
